Why We Came To TREE

10 Mar 2017

 

Hadley Woods is a seventh grader at TREE Academy. She is fun, passionate, and enjoys spending time with her friends. I was curious why Hadley decided to come to TREE over other choices, and what she thought made TREE better than any other public school, private school, or even the choice of being homeschooled. 

 

When I asked Hadley why she chose to come to TREE she said, “My old school sucked, there were too many people in a class and I couldn’t really learn.” It turns out Hadley and I have experienced the same situation. My school was increasing in numbers for our 8th Grade class and was about to have nearly 40 students in just one classroom. 

 

I wanted to know what Hadley liked about her old school. “I had a lot of friends,” she told me. I also related to this. At my old school, the only thing I really enjoyed were my friends. She went on to say, “I’m still good friends with a lot of people at that school but, there were about 27,000 kids at that school!”

 

Hadley has a close bond with all of the students here and everyone gets along with her really well. In fact, all of us seem to have a really close bond with each other here at TREE.

 

From what I have learned about Hadley and other students here so far, we all are having a great experience here at TREE. I will continue to talk to more students and post their experiences here on Evergreen throughout the year.
